    ?.uu is surrounded by whitespace. So above command line generated an
    unexpected file.

The change that makes ? operate this way only when followed by whitespace
made the example incorrect.  As far as I can see, there is no simple way
to make this example work again:

          uuencode ? ? > ?.uu

Does anyone see a way that I don't see?
If not, I will just delete the example.

It is sort of unfortunate if there's no way now to
substitute the file name and add an extension to it.
